(also, fancy shiny new community servers are out that cater to what you desire). permalink .. This is great for other games, but not for Team Fortress. No one was too serious and there was plenty of time to meet people and have fun. .. The fist couple of matches were exactly as you said, too quick. Despite being released over 10 years ago, Team Fortress 2 still boasts You genuinely feel exhausted by random people who you have never met in your entire life . in a world where we modify all our behaviour to cater to those people, . Valve message it even worse again when they introduced quick. With over 50, sq feet of commercial catering equipment ready for next day Home to our highly trained sales & service teams our purpose built HQ helps.
Because they live inside a frantic multiplayer shooter, though, the only facets of those personalities people got to see were the screaming, shooting, and being-on-fire parts. Enter the Meet the Team shorts, showcasing the mercenaries in their off-hours—arguing with their parents, barking orders at their head collections, or just strumming a guitar by the campfire. Also we made a movie about a sandwich. The clips have their origins in audition scripts for the voice actors who played the likes of the Heavythe Sniperand the rest of the characters in the game.
The first video in the series released in MayMeet the Heavy, is almost word-for-word what Valve used to cast actor Gary Schwartz. The video was made on the heels of a Portal video used to promote the personality of that game.
After the first short was released, viewers praised both the quality of the animation and the humour of the script, likening it to productions by professional animation studios such as Pixar. Due to this highly positive reception, Valve announced plans to release a Meet the Team video for each individual class in the game, with possible side-features for items and non-player characters such as Meet the Sandvich.
Developer Robin Walker has stated that the shorts "tie in to the strategy we have with TF2 of continually updating the service What the videos do is give ways for people who don't even have Team Fortress 2 yet to get some entertainment from the game. Exit Theatre Mode Taking cues from Minecraft, Ace of Spades thrusts you into a block-based world where everything can be mined, dug out, or built.
Only instead of trying to erect that five story wang you always said would be your greatest artistic achievement, here the aim of the game is to obliterate the enemy team through a mix of teamwork, construction, destruction and raw FPS skills. On the surface, perhaps, but as you dig a little deeper it morphs into entirely its own thing. There are four classes, and they cater to subsets of people, rather than just offering a different gun here or a special ability there.
The Soldier is the easiest to explain, being entirely focused on death by bullets and explosions. Armed with a rifle, minigun and rocket launcher, this class is almost entirely geared towards collateral damage, rather than anything more directed. The Scout has a little more finesse, equipped with sniper rifle and SMG in addition to the same basic pickaxe that the Soldier carries. This allows you to dissemble the environment one cube at a time, which can be slow going if you want to get anywhere.
In "The Naked and the Dead" comic, Miss Pauling believes that she has died from blood loss along with Zhanna, Soldier, and Demoman after being attacked by Australium-extracting robots.
Suddenly, she regains consciousness and discovers that Medic has found the party and is replenishing their lost blood. Big Guy, Little Guy: When he hangs around with the Heavy, he's—naturally—the little guy. When pausing the video during "Meet The Spy", before the fake Medic puts on his glasses, note that he's both squinting and a bit cross-eyed, just like someone with a strong prescription would be after taking off their glasses.
Blue and Orange Morality: It turns out that the real reason why the Medic joined the Classic Team was because he needed funding for his experiments a good deal of which he spent on resurrecting the Snipernot because he is genuinely evil. Granted he is performing said experiment on the Classic Team, but he seems to think that's what his job is.
My experiments require funding! Not him, but the Pocket Medic doll in his likeness. However, see Difficult, but Awesome below. But Not Too Evil: The Medic was around during WWII, is German, has a shady past, is insane like the rest of the team, and generally considers his healing an unintended side effect to his real work. Initially, Robin Walker said it would have been "too easy" to make him one.
Canon explains that Medic's entire family is full of mad scientists, and has been for generations—in fact, they're chased out of their hometown at least once a generation. The Burly Beast cosmetic item reveals that he has a muscular, hairy chest.
Originally, he started out as your typical cold, stoic, mad scientist with lines that were mostly insults directed towards his team. This has been completely phased out ever since "Meet the Medic"; now he's an enthusiastic lunatic who's more crazy than sadistic.
Ace of Spades: Minecraft Meets Team Fortress?
Further supported by the extra Medic voice lines specifically added for the Halloween Scream Fortress event: Coming face to face with a mad magician, the Medic sounds more and more unhinged but at the same time terribly enthusiastic at the prospect of learning actual magic.
This video confirms it ; Robin Atkin Downes is having too much fun as the Medic! His syringe gun and bonesaw never see use as medical tools, and his Medigun is best suited for breakthrough support. There also exists such thing as a "battle medic", a player who would rather fight and often refuses to heal.
Woe befall any player that actually tries this with him though. Battle Medics are so despised they tend to get votekicked off even if everyone else on the team are dead. That being said, however, Medics that both heal and use their weapons as the situation calls for them are much more useful than those that focus solely on healing, no matter what some players might say. Machine, he can actually play this straight and make it damn useful thanks to one upgrade: The shield's main purpose is to block projectiles and to block the movement of the robots, but it has a secondary bonus of dealing low amounts of damage to any robot that tries passing through it, and it dishes it out fast enough to kill anything but a Heavy or a giant.
It's completely viable to use the shield to quickly kill any stray robots or just using it to annihilate the wave that's coming through. Hell, you can even use it on the damn tanks and it would be a considerable help. Even better, it can deal mini-crits with the help of the Buff Banner or Jarate.

Also in Mann vs. With all upgrades applied, the Blutsauger has a DPS that puts the Heavy's miniguns to shame and has clips and ammo reserves so large they can't display properly. On top of that, it will heal the Medic an astonishing average of 11 health per successful hit, which can in turn heal the Medic by more than his entire health bar in less than a second. If the Medic has max resistances, he will be unkillable even when the entire robot horde is trying to kill him.
The best part is that you don't even need to heal anyone at this point with the Medigun; anyone who shoots anything you have shot will get some health back—not that anyone else will be taking much damage anyway, as the robots will prioritize you because they will still Shoot the Medic First even though it has virtually no effect. Notably, a Medic has a huge chance of winning a head-to-head confrontation against another non-frontline class Sniper, Spy, Engineer given his superior movespeed and health, and his Syringe Gun, while not being a hitscan weapon, outdamages the SMG, Revolver, and ties with the Engineer's shotgun.
Or in the Medic's case, he is the ultimate bullshit artist. Even more incredible than his ability to break the laws of biology is his incredible talent to fast-talk people into giving him what he wants, such as agreeing to let him perform experimental surgery on them, despite the fact they should know better see the "Meet the Medic" short movie, and the comic "Blood in the Water". He even conned the Devil to send him back to Earth and give him 50 extra years of life on top of it
